Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Composites - Demand and Sales Forecasts, Market Share, Market Size, Market Leaders

Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Composites - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) composites will climb 4.7 percent annually to 4.3 billion pounds in 2017, valued at $22.9 billion. Motor vehicles will remain the largest market while construction will grow the fastest as it rebounds from the 2007-2012 period. Both thermoset and thermoplastic FRP composites will grow in line with the average.

This study analyzes the 3.5 billion pound US FRP composites industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by fiber (e.g., glass, carbon, aramid), composite resin (e.g., polyester, epoxy, nylon, thermoplastic polyester, polypropylene, styrenics, polycarbonate) and market (e.g., motor vehicles, construction, electrical and electronics, consumer durables, marine).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry players, including Hexcel, Owens Corning and Cytec.
